This lesson provided an engaging way to collect data (through Kahoot) and also had the potential to create interesting findings - the students (and I) didn't know if they would do better when the basic facts were written using numbers or using words. However, there were two major setbacks that happened during this lesson:
- the first setback was that the students (and I) struggled to see the difference between + and ÷, so when the number questions were projected on the board, it was hard to see what was actually being asked. To improve this for next time the students suggested using / to represent divide. However for this experiment it meant that the scores were being affected by this.
- the second setback was that because I tried using the Automatically move to next question feature for Kahoot, I missed downloading the results for a Kahoot. This meant that we had to restart the Kahoot and did not have enough time for the students to create their own graphs. Instead I quickly demonstrated how to graph the data using Google Sheets.
